About me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in New Jersey, a Nationally Certified Counselor, and a Certified Child and Adolescent Trauma Professional. I aim to build a strong, therapeutic relationship with you to help us work together towards your goals. As I walk along with you throughout your growth journey, I will utilize your strengths to help you achieve your goals and utilize the most effective therapeutic treatment(s) that is tailored to your individual life.

As a therapist, I have worked with individuals ages 2-21 through mobile response crisis situations, intensive in-home therapy, residential group home settings and partial care level group therapy. While working with children, adolescents and adults, I integrate family sessions as clinically indicated to promote sustainability within the household. I have also worked with all ages 65+, as an outpatient clinician in a community setting. Regardless of my clients’ ages, I aim to prioritize self-determination, promote well-being, and provide a safe, comfortable, and nonjudgmental environment for my clients to achieve their goals at their own pace.

Jeannina is warm and compassionate but challenges me when appropriate. She has been very kind and empathetic and has helped me work through several issues in just a short amount of time.
